Acording to this article
Konami is planning to release more games on the Metal Gear, Castlevania and Silent Hill franchises.
On my opinion they should start with what has proven succesful in the past, although what I consider succesful is just games that I have really enjoyed, not necessarily succesful sales wise.
I believe a current gen remake of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 for the NES are long overdue, I would buy that instantly, I'm pretty sure Sony would be very interested in helping them with that.
For the Castlevania franchise they should release a couple metroidvanias first, if I'm not mistaken the last one from them was Order of Ecclesia and that was a very long time ago. Metroidvanias are more popular than ever now, and even Nintendo is releasing a new side scroller Metroid this month. There has never been a critically acclaimed 3D Castlevaina as far as I'm concerned so they should go first for what has been great in the past.
For Silent Hill I believe it's more complicated, I associate the franchise with weird and awesome Japanese horror, so everytime I see that a western developer I get somewhat prejudicial about it. It's a shame that we never got to see the proper game from the PT released, I hope they make great decisions for the sake of the franchise
Bonus: on the article they mention that Konami were dissappointed with the Contra: Rogue Corps critically and sales wise, I wish they would release a game like Hard Corps: Uprising with more production values, that game was awesome and had great time with a lot of friends.
I would like to know if anyone here believes more games from those franchises are welcomed for them and if they believe Konami will make good decisions for them.
